Spotted Deadnettle Growing and Maintenance Tips

Best grown in an average to moist, well-drained soil, in partial shade to full shade. Vigorous grower and very tolerant of dry, shady locations. Can fill in a large space in a short time, is manageable and not necessarily invasive. Hot, humid summers can cause foliage decline. If foliage becomes leggy or unruly, you can prune or mow  to promote a more compact, tidy habit. Pruning will also promote new blooms, forming sporadically throughout the summer and into the fall. Plant in combination with spring bulbs.
